Topping to the Next Level - Techniques for Thoughtful Tops

Saturday November 2nd, 2013

In 2007 Max and Russell were discussing topping models and what it takes to produce a good scene. They collected their notes and built the widely acclaimed "Topping to the Next Level" series.

"Techniques for Thoughtful Tops" gets you thinking about how scenes are constructed and what makes them work.

Topics we'll be covering include:

  • Scene structure and dynamics
  • The parts of a scene
  • Tips, tools and techniques for each part
  • Getting what you want - matching techniques to objectives
  • Physiology and psychology
  • Building and maintaining connection

Topping to the Next Level - Hot Negotiation

Saturday November 2nd, 2013

If you think negotiation is finding out what your bottom likes and doesn't like you're missing the best parts.

Negotiation is the foundation for the scene.

It establishes consent, builds trust, sets a tone, creates expectations and identifies boundaries.

With the right tools, it can also be hot, seductive and wickedly effective.

We'll explore:

  • What is the real purpose of negotiation?
  • Where does the negotiation end and the scene begin?
  • What objectives should you pursue when you negotiate?
  • When should your negotiation NOT lead to a scene?
  • What is your negotiation style?
  • Does your style suite your purpose and persona?
  • What are some specific techniques for eliciting engagement, obtaining consent and gathering information?

Learn how to negotiate more powerfully and effectively. You're scenes will be better for it.

Toppping to the Next Level - How to Push

Saturday November 2nd, 2013

When is it OK to push your bottom? And how do you push them safely, ethically, and effectively?

If you've got that mastered, try this: how do you push yourself?

Topics we'll be covering include:

  • Getting someone outside their comfort zone
  • Helping your bottom receive stimulus and process play
  • Creating tension in your scenes
  • Working with a bottom who asks you to push them harder or says "I'm afraid of this but I want to try it?"
  • Encouraging your bottom to try something they're unsure ofLearning from someone's "never done it" history
  • Gracefully managing the intensity of a sceneHelping bottoms push through barriers
  • Renegotiating during a scene
  • Recognizing "hard limits" vs. "soft limits"
